ABSTRACT
The article focuses on King Richard I of England during the Third Crusade in the Middle East. The decision made by Richard not to enter Jerusalem following victory in a battle over forces of the Muslim leader Saladin on September 7, 1191 is discussed as an example of a prudent decision by a military commander, as Richard's forces would not have been strong enough to hold the city if counterattacked.
